Dexedrine & Ritalin Detoxification and Rehabilitation Centers in Virginia

Prescription medications such as Dexedrine will cause addiction and drug dependency. The problem can start with a prescription for the medication, and if it is not taken as directed, the user can become physically and psychologically dependent on it. Dexedrine is the brand name for dextroamphetamine and is a prescribed stimulant for problems such as ADHD or narcolepsy. Dexedrine will directly impact the reward centers within the brain, and this has the potential for it to become habit-forming, especially if it is abused. These types of amphetamines are commonly used recreationally, especially by students because of the increased alertness it will provide. Addiction and dependency can cause serious physical and mental health problems, especially if it is left untreated. Drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs and centers within the state of Virginia will help addicts who are addicted to or prescribed drugs such as Dexedrine. Addicts and their families can choose from various inpatient and outpatient centers, and suitable detox programs throughout the state. Ritalin is the brand name for methylphenidate, which is a central nervous system stimulant. Ritalin is prescribed to treat ADHD, ADD, and narcolepsy, however; Ritalin is used recreationally for its stimulating effects. The excessive use and misuse of Ritalin will create similar effects like those connected to amphetamines and cocaine. When Ritalin is abused it can be crushed and snorted, inhaled, and even injected. These methods of use will increase the effects of the drug and how quickly it takes effect. Ritalin is often abused by younger people because it is the younger age demographic that is being diagnosed with ADHD and given these drugs. Drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers and programs throughout the state of Virginia include options for prescription drug addiction. Residential and outpatient drug treatment services throughout the state include long-term and short-term options, and the necessary detox to help stimulant addicts through the withdrawals.
